    whats a supermotard and how to make one?

    i think for a street tard.. a blke with a wide ratio trans or 6 speeds is best... crf 450X, wr 450, KTM excs(07 an 08) already street legal and have a 6 speed wide ratio trans.......
  2. if its just BS... than why(IMHO) is it more fun to ride a bike(dirt or street) that has a nice level torque curve???? for example, triumphs 1050 triple, or a 4 stroke dirt bike compaired to a 2 stroke... there easy to ride fast.... and as far as the dyno thing, some read acceleration so the same motor with a lighter flywheel or crank, will accelerate faster and have a higher HP and torque #s.. so, the #s dont mean that much but i think the curve is a good way to tell what personallity the motor will have...
  3. got any torque #s.... thats what counts... and HP #s will read low with nobbes, thay slip on the dyno.....

    08s.... ????

    any good right ups on the 08s yet???? euro bikes are out right?? looking at the EXC 450R or the 530. to conv. to a street legal supermoto.... i find it interesting that KTM went to a stroke diff rather than a bore diff to get the extra dissplacment on the new EXC motors.. should be cool to see how thay do.....

    R motor in a L???????

    : no... if the vin # comes up as an off road omly bike, it dosnt have a fed. insp. sticker, so you have to show them at the DMV it has one....... or no plates, i even went as far as getting a title from a diff. state(to plate a crf 450X) in my name, and no dice......

    R motor in a L???????

    ok... has anybody ever swaped a XR650R motor to a XR650L frame????? did a search but nothing......... the deal is, i would get a R and just plate it, but here in wisconsin it cant be done anymore:mad: ..... and theres no way around it(i tryed)...... so.... the way it looks the L motor is limited to about 50HP at the wheel.... so what do you guys think......
